If you are wondering if hypnotherapy really works, see my HYPNOSIS RESEARCH page to see an independent research study comparing hypnosis to traditional therapies showing that hypnotherapy clients experience a 93% recovery rate after 6 sessions, psychoanalysis 38% recovery after 600 sessions, behavioral therapy 72% recovery rate after 22 sessions.*
Now that we have established that it works, let’s open a dialogue about how you and I, working together as a team, can tune up and enhance every area of your life through hypnosis and life coaching to create balance and a passion for living. Call me for a free no pressure/no obligation telephone overview of how this works and what I can do for you!
Hypnosis is a process that usually requires a few to about five sessions, sometimes more. The number of sessions is determined by your desire to change, core issues and adhering to mutually established expectations. Many people experience dramatic results after the first session. By session three, you will have learned self-hypnosis. My goal is to make you independent of me.
Anyone can be hypnotized. You are in a state of hypnosis when you watch TV or a movie. No one will do anything under hypnosis that they will not do when unhypnotized. It’s like a guided meditation. Under hypnosis, your senses are actually heightened while your body and mind feel very relaxed:
“Hypnosis is a trance-like state in which you have heightened focus and concentration … Contrary to how hypnosis is sometimes portrayed in movies or on television, you don’t lose control over your behavior while under hypnosis.”
Hypnosis/hypnotherapy is not regulated in Utah like other professions. Anyone can take a class for a week and become a hypnotist and then take another class to become a hypnotherapist without a degree or education in psychology. Certification does not even require a high school diploma. Would you go to a mechanic for brain surgery? I will not lure you in with suspiciously low fees and then try to sell you an expensive non-refundable package or other products/services while you are most vulnerable. With all the hypnotherapists out there (many are doing it part-time or as a hobby without degrees in psychology), which one should you choose? Here are quotes from clients:
“Used it to qualify for Boston marathon. When he suggested that I would easily beat my goal I didn’t really buy it but then I finished 15 minutes ahead of my goal. Other people were dropping from the heat but he made it so I was oblivious to the heat. Totally worked. 100% worth it.”
“Before contacting Bill for treatment, I investigated him and other hypnotherapists thoroughly. Bill is recognized as the foremost hypnotherapist in Utah by City Weekly, KSL and most importantly by other hypnotists. He has the highest Google ratings. He also has the highest level of certification in the nation as well as one of the highest levels of education with more than 40 years of solid experience. In just a few sessions, Bill assisted me in creating dynamic changes in my life and in my family. I highly recommend him and his amazing talents. He is one of the most intuitive individuals I have met.” *
“Bill is to hypnotherapy and healing what Beethoven was to music, Einstein to science and Rembrandt to art. He’s a modern day Edgar Cayce. Bill intuitively identifies root causes and has this amazing gift of healing. He is open, friendly and incapable of judging others. When I first went to Bill, I had no voice, felt depressed, my confidence was low and my career was stalled. I found Bill to be very competent and professional. He introduced me to the Law of Attraction/Power of intention. After the first session, I started confronting issues and feeling very confident. He made an amazing difference in my life. I now feel very positive, have healed relationships, been promoted to district manager of a large corporation in Salt Lake City where I receive monthly bonuses and just bought the home of my dreams! I have referred numerous clients, friends and relatives to Bill who all experienced the same amazing results.”
“My grandson was experiencing an average of 5 seizures a day after a motorcycle accident. His mother died about the same time. He was also depressed, anxious and started isolating. Bill treated him for stress about 3 months ago. He has not experienced a seizure since his first session and has reduced his medication dramatically. He is now happy and peaceful. I have my grandson back! Bill has worked with my friends and other members of my family with the same incredible results”
“Alcohol was playing a huge part and destroying my life. Rehabs did not work. Bill treated me for the habit of drinking. After one session my withdrawals were gone! He has changed everything for me and I am so incredibly grateful that I met him!!”

“Bill has been an amazing help to me during my time of difficulty. He has an impressive way of understanding my situation. He analyzes details and summarizes my challenges into ways that I can manage them. He takes time to hear me out, and has offered multiple ways for me to overcome my current situation. I feel like I ve known him for years but yet we had just met. I recommend his services!! He is an expert.”

“Our voices are reflections of our Souls. Bill has this amazing deep soothing hypnotic voice which immediately relaxes me. I can feel it resonating through my entire being during hypnosis…”

“Hypnotherapy worked great for my test anxiety. I had failed the NBME (National Board of Medical Examiners) test 3 times, each time by a point or two. I had only 1 more chance to take the test, because if you flunk the fourth time, you are permanently exited from medical school. Although I had been studying for two years, my scores on practice tests were not improving. I was very discouraged, but I knew that the information was in my brain somewhere, on account of how much I had studied. I had reviewed every subject several times, but during exams I kept getting a brain freeze accompanied by a hopeless, exhausted feeling that was self-defeating. Finally I had this idea to try hypnotherapy…I called a couple of hypnotherapists, and both said test anxiety responds very well to hypnotherapy, and that Bill Draney was the best in town. I went to Bill for three sessions, and then took the test for the fourth time. This time, I passed by a comfortable margin, making an above-average score. I am pleased and relieved…”
I create consistent, rapid and permanent internalized results with typical, unique, difficult and perplexing cases with adults, adolescents and children (see SERVICES).
Unlike many hypnosis practitioners, I do not use scripts or have you listen to CD’s. My passion is focused on creating the customized change and success you desire in your life. Every session is designed to your specific needs.
Anything you tell me is strictly confidential.Your political, spiritual and/or religious beliefs are respected. I do not judge – especially addictions, past behaviors, political affiliation, religious preference or sexual orientation. You are welcome to bring a friend or relative with you.
My holistic approach combines advanced state-of-the-art hypnosis techniques with “Law of Attraction – Power of Intention,” (principles of The Secret), intuitive energy healing, metaphysics and life coaching (see my credentials BUSINESS AND PROFESSIONAL COACHING tab). Through these processes, you will enrich and empower your life with just a few sessions.
My emphasis is on accelerated healing of core issues rather than just treating symptoms. Results are usually dramatic but there are no guarantees. You will be surprised at how quickly you start to feel love for yourself and experience results. With a few sessions, the results should become internalized.
I provide certification for those who want to become hypnotists, hypnotherapists and/or clinical hypnotherapists BECOME CERTIFIED. I also provide advanced training for all levels of hypnosis practitioners who are required to take additional classes to maintain their certifications.
If you are only interested in learning the basics of hypnosis, including self-hypnosis, without becoming certified, I provide that training at a reduced fee. Clients include mental health professionals, law enforcement, teachers, clergy, health care providers, energy workers and the general public.
I charge more as I have the highest level of certification, education, results, reviews and years of experience in UT. I also get the best results with fewer sessions. You actually save money by coming to me as you will require fewer sessions and get faster and better results. I do not accept payment plans. Insurance will not cover hypnotherapy in Utah.
